Our mission of safety, healing and freedom from domestic abuse and sexual assault is our priority and we have taken steps to ensure the safety of our staff and our clients, given the COVID-19 potential for community spread.
Home is not always safe for everyone and incidences of domestic violence rise after natural disasters. Our goal is to support our current clients as well as those who may be seeking services in the near future. I want to assure you that critical services will continue without interruption.
Our Client Advocates are Available 24/7
- Our hotlines are available 24-hours a day, 7-days a week for anyone to call from anywhere. Domestic Abuse Hotline 208-343-7025 / Sexual Assault Hotline 208-345-7273
- Our emergency and transitional shelters will continue to operate with trained client advocates there to support our residential clients
Our Crisis Center is Open Monday – Friday, 8 a.m. to 5 p.m.
- Our Crisis Center, located at 720 W. Washington, will continue to be open to those needing to talk to our Crisis Case Manager or receive information about our services
Our Court Advocates are at the Ada County Court House
- Our Court Advocate staff located at the Ada County Courthouse will continue to assist those seeking civil protection orders while complying with any Ada County recommendations and restrictions
- The Court Advocate team is also available for safety planning through telephonic appointments
We have modified the way we will deliver some of the services we provide to reduce in-person contact, but will continue to provide the services to those who need us. Thank you for your continued support through this trying time in our community. We are accepting new items from our Wish list and gift cards for our clients and shelter campus.
I want those who need us to know, you are not alone. We are still here 24-hours a day, 7 days a week. If you are in an emergency situation, please call 911.
